On Monday, K. Chandrasekhar Rao the Telangana Chief Minister said the state government is giving a last and final opportunity for interlopers to regularise their lands on which houses were built and asked them to utilise it without fail.
January 20 is the last day to submit applications for regularisation at MRO offices and after making ground-level verification officials will regularise the lands if they are in conformity with stipulated norms. And govt will take back the lands which were not enrolled.
He said “Officials will examine each and every application thoroughly; take up ground-level inspection in three months before regularising such lands. We will complete the entire regularisation process by April 30. From May 1, we will not allow encroachment of even an inch of land in Telangana. We will treat all those as encroachers, who fail to submit applications within the January 20 deadline and get it regularised by April 30. We will take over those lands and invoke the PD Act against encroachers.”
A meeting held at Secretariat by Mr Rao to discuss the progress of land regularisation, for which the submission of applications began on Monday. There should not be any fresh encroachments from now on stated KCR.
“We want to set right all the land records in Telangana. Previous governments in the undivided state allowed rampant encroachments. Though it is wrong to build houses on encroached lands, the Telangana government has decided to give a final opportunity for regularisation. If anyone ignores utilising this and continues to reside on encroached lands, we will not spare them,” he added.
There will be no question of giving another chance for regularisation after process ends.
